This week, North Richland Hills City Manager Mark Hindman announced budget cuts due to economic losses from coronavirus. The city is anticipating a significant shortfall in sales tax and other revenues due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. Budget cuts are being made in all operations, including across the board pay cuts for all full-time employees and closing city operations for 3 days in May to save money. The closure of all non-emergency city operations will take place on Fridays, May 1, May 8 and May 15.
“Just like so many families and businesses across the community, we must make difficult decisions and adjust our spending,” said City Manager Mark Hindman. “This is not where any of us expected to be when we developed our 2020 budget plans, but we are facing a challenge unlike any other we have experienced. We must react in a way that continues critical services and does not place additional burden on the taxpayers.”
